How to mobile marketing

19 replies
Hello to all warriors.

I have been interested in making money from home for the past 8 years.
I was only doing ecommerce with ebay stores amazon etc.. these platforms only generated about $1500 - $3000 on a good month. I put in at least 35 hours a week doing this and I feel the time isnt worth the profits after doing it for so many years.

I am highly interested in mobile marketing and ready to do 40 - 80 hours a week to get it right but the problem is, I have no idea where to start or how this works.

Can my fellow warriors please help with some knowledge about how this works and how to get involved.

Thank you in advance and bless you all!

      Here's the problem guys....

      There are a few marketers who have cracked the code on Mobile Marketing.
      And guess what? They're not telling their secrets....yet.

      As soon as some of their first wins in this space start to become less effective,
      we'll start seeing courses about what worked for them when they first got
      started in Mobile Marketing.

      But, for some reason, they'll forget to mention that the tactics and techniques
      that their course is based on worked 2 years ago but are no longer as effective today.
      (I think "today" is about another 6-12 months off before we start seeing the big
      courses being marketed by the "big guys.")

      Just a hunch...

      There's a few things showing up here and there but not like it will be soon.

        That's true in a lot of niches but there's definitely a lot of mobile products out there showing people how to make money right now.

        It's no secret that plenty of people are making money with mobile websites, sms, email marketing and things like that. Mobile is only just at it's infancy so now is the time to jump on all of this stuff.

    Hey team

    My biggest success is off line by marketing to my local businesses, My sugestion is dont lead with a mobile website or app because you'll be greeted with an answer that goes along the lines of my website company takes care of that for us.

    If you want to set the appointment one strategy I use over the phone is this line which I learnt through Kevin Z, I just tried to view your website from my iphone but it isn't working. Who is the best person for me to speak to about a real simple way to fix this...

    They will say their owners name or their managers name ask to be put through to that person except this time you say I jus tried to view your website from my mobile but your site doesn't work correctly. It's a real easy fix and you don't need to get your web site company involved if that's looked after by another firm.

    Would you like me to show you what your website should look like on a mobile phone? They always answer yes or ok. You then say excellent rather than try and discuss this over the phone because I can appreciate your probably busy right now, when's a good time for you and It will take no more than 10 minutes for me to show you what your website should look like on a mobile phone.

    Do you prefer morning or afternoon? Set the appointment day and prefered time then close by confirming the details and also say is it ok for me to send you a text reminder 1 hour before I come out just incase something comes up for you. They always say yes that's fine then grab their mobile number send them a quick text their and then giving them your details with a quick thank you message for their time.

    Hope this helps you get your foot in the door and one step closer to your first sale

    To go along with what jherewini said I would mention trying to get a small demo page/site up so that you can show perspective clients what their site should look like right on the call. Bootstrap by Twitter, and HTML5Bolierplate are good examples of responsive mobile frameworks and only take some html, css, javascript knowledge to customize.

    The three categories of mobile marketing you may want to learn about are:
    1) Mobile Websites
    2) Mobile Applications (Apps)
    3) SMS Marketing

    You can either learn to build mobile sites & apps or you can outsource the work. You should try to understand the advantages & disadvantages of both.

    SMS or Text Message Marketing works really well for specific industries. But you should understand the laws, guidelines, etc. before jumping right in.

    You may want to invest some of your time here on the the forum. There are several good WSO's and many threads that will give you a well rounded understanding of mobile.

    Also, It is important for you to understand that in most cases if you are involved in "mobile marketing" you will be dealing with people and chances are you will be "selling." It is probably very different then what you may be accustomed to. Having said this, you may want to consider learning some sales skills.

    I hope this was somewhat helpful.
    Good Luck!

    Although, Mobile instant messaging is become a very easy as well result oriented approach but many Telecommunication Companies has banned that kind approach that internet marketing approaches that are truly working to advertisement, all of them are strictly banned. Just check the laws then start that kind of work.

      To tell the truth, I don't see big difference in Mobile and Web marketing. For Mobile Websites you just need to use several more targetings (by devices and operators) and that's all. Find your profitable Advertiser and High Quality Publishers and start earning.

    Hello
    Mobile marketing is the best source to increase your business growth rate, as mobile users are really increasing every single day. If you want to start mobile marketing, or opt for an M-ecommerce site, then you must first be aware of what all types of mobile marketing exist. So here below is a list of some types of mobile marketing.
    1. SMS : This is the most common form of mobile marketing, which allows you to send relevant marketing messages in text.
    2. MMS: Here you can send images and videos to show case what exactly you are marketing or representing.
    3. Mobile Apps: These are now rapidly growing forms of marketing where the ads can be hosted inside the application design and logic
    4. Pay-per-call mobile: It is a kind of mobile advertising where the reader of the mobile ad makes a call instantly to the customer service representative number, present in the ad message.
    5. Voice marketing: Voice broadcasting make calls to the numbers present in a computer managed list and plays a pre-recorded message to the reciever who in genuine is the customer
    6. Mobile banner ads: These are small banner ads fitted for mobile screen and run on the mobile content network.

    So, now that you are aware of the types of mobile networking, now it is your turn to decide which one you need to start up with for your mobile marketing mission. As for me, go for mobile applications where you can represent lot many of things in a much better and convinient way.

    Hope this must have helped you to some good extent.

      You can type up a contract if you feel more comfortable with that. I would start by setting up a demo site, figure out what you want to charge, and they make sure you collect the check for that amount.

    Errmm, cracked the code on mobile marketing?

    You called, I'm present. I've only written the largest (189 pages) free guide on it, coded a mobile ad tracker with 800+ clients and created a mobile ad agency with over 250+ brands and 500+ mobile affiliates.

    May have not cracked it yet but well on my way...I hope!
